Antique Baseball Mitt / Glove
This is an awesome Baily and Himes ball glove. This one is from the days of the baseball greats. The lack of a web and finger laces tell how old it is. It is in good condition with no rips or tears in the leather. It has normal use wear and the strap is in good shape. The leather remains soft and pliable but probably could use some oil. It even fits my big hand. This one is man cave material and worthy of top shelf display.

Civil War Medal – 76th Illinois Regiment
This 150+ year old metal is a museum quality Civil War Relic. It is from the 76th Infantry Regiment of the Illinois Volunteer Union Army based out of Kankakee, Illinois. The 76th was mustered Aug. 22nd 1862 and had a long history in the Civil War including fighting under General Grant at several locations such as the seige of Vicksburg. It also fought under General Sherman at Jackson Mississippi where it lost 102 men, 16 of which were left on the field. The 76th fought in the last major battle of the war at Fort Blakely Alabama where it helped capture an intire Confererate garrison and suffered heavy lossed. Unfortunately that battle was fought hours after Lee had already surrendered The regiment then traveled to Chicago where it was disbanded on August 6,1865. Over 250 men were killed in battle and by disease it their 3 year tenure. I am sure this is worth much more than my asking price.

Small Revolutionary War Era Pistol Primer Powder Horn-4″
This piece is pretty cool. The smallest primer horn I have ever seen. At just 4″ long it was probably just carried in a pocket and not on a strap. It appears to have the original hand carved plug. Lots of use wear and very nice patina overall.
Rare Native American Indian Stirrup
This is a very old and rare item that is in excellent condition. It was ingeniously made of from one piece of hand carved wood that was notched and then bent into position. The wood was then tied with what I believe is sinew. Then it was covered with animal hide, possibly buffalo, that was stretched and tied around the entire stirrup. This piece shows the high skill level and beautiful craftsmanship of it’s maker. It was purchased at a relic show in central Ohio in the late 60’s.
